ABOUT LONELY PLANET CANADA
Few names are as synonymous with travel as Lonely Planet. The company's zest for adventure, light-hearted tone and simple, user-friendly travel guides have earned it a stellar reputation as a trusted source for top-quality travel products.
Founded in 1972 by Maureen and Tony Wheeler, Lonely Planet was born out of the couple's love for tavel and the belief that fellow amateur travelers could benefit from a frank, engaging guidebook that offered tips and advice on navigating unfamiliar regions. The couple's first book was called "Across Asia on the Cheap" and sold out within days. Lonely Planet soon expanded to include more writers and cover destinations across the world.
As the company expanded and solidified its reputation, the Lonely Planet name became a highly recognized international travel brand. Since 1972, the company has undergone many changes, including several sales - first to the BBC and most recently to NC2 Media. Today, the company has offices in the UK, Australia, India and the USA and sells a variety of products and services through its website LonelyPlanet.com.
The company's primary products have remained their travel guidebooks, however Lonely Planet also offers a variety of fun activity books, coffee table pictorials, calendars and other products. LonelyPlanet.com also allows travelers to look for flights, hotel accommodations, car rentals and tours directly off the website, making it a great one-stop-shop for anything and everything relating to travel and adventure.
